Viendre is a Wise One of the Goshien Aiel who is very strong in the One Power


She has an eagle-like face and has blue eyes. She looks to be in her mid-twenties, but could be older due to the One Power.

Strength in the One Power

Viendre is among the strongest female channelers. Her level is described as such:

"Tamela and Viendre were stronger in the Power than she [Elayne], stronger than any sister she had met save Nynaeve."
   —Winter's Heart, Prologue

But in the "Wheel of Time Companion" there is a mistake about her strength, in fact only Tamela is confirmed stronger 5(+8) than Elayne 8(+5); instead Viendre is described even some levels below Elayne, at level 10(+3). Even if at the time of her meeting with Viendre Elayne had not reached her full potential, she was near it, so two levels below is still too much to describe Viendre as stronger.


She stands for Elayne Trakand in her first-sister bonding ceremony with Aviendha.
